Naulakha, meaning 'jewel without price', was the home designed and built by Rudyard Kipling for his American wife Caroline Balestier and family in 1893. During his time there, Kipling wrote many of his best known works including The Jungle Book, The Just So Stories, Captains Courageous and The Seven Seas.
Restored by The Landmark Trust in 1993, Naulakha has been returned to its original design and is now available to rent for weekends or longer breaks.
Eight of us spent a wonderful week there in early November, enjoying the atmosphere of the house, reading in Kipling's study, exploring our very own 11 acres and experiencing all kinds of weather, including sunshine followed by 2ft of snow (great for sledging just outside the house).
Naulakha is a special place that will linger in the memory for a long time.
